My husband and I recently enjoyed a delicious, relaxing dinner here while traveling. The service was speedy and excellent. We enjoyed the Mosakejito & Sakecolada cocktails along with a cucumber & avocado roll as appetizers. The main dishes were perfectly portioned and delicious, and the...More

The beautifully and expertly prepared meals are always worth the trip to this restaurant. Every food item is delicately produced and a visual as well as an eating delight. I love the tofu steaks and my husband really enjoys eating the Tori Kara.

The food was okay, certainly edible, but not spectacular. The fresh squeezed lemonade was excellent. Prices were average and service was very good.
